Here at CoolKid we are always looking for ways to reduce waste and eat fresh on the go. The people over at Sili Squeeze have combined these two ideas perfectly. You know those disposable pouches of baby food that are touted as all natural, organic, and fresh? Yeah, well come to find out they have a shelf life of one year. ONE YEAR! The Sili Squeeze is a product that is made of BPA Free Silicone that mimics those organic pouches at the grocery store – with one difference, it is washable and reusable. So now instead of buying 10+ food pouches at the grocery store, you can whip up a couple different recipes to keep on hand in your refrigerator and fill up the Sili Squeeze whenever it is empty and your little tot needs a snack. Here is the Sili Squeeze in all its glory….
Also, of course I wouldn’t leave you with a product and no recipes to fill it with would I? Here are my (and my CoolKids’) favorite ways to fill the Sili Squeeze.
1. Green Monster- One heaping handful of spinach, one banana, one cup of frozen fruit (I use Costco Organic Fruit Blend which has mango, strawberry and peach), a handful of ice, half a cup of orange juice and half a cup of carrot juice. Blend until super smooth and creamy. Fill the Sili and save the rest, or have one yourself! Us CoolMoms need nourishment too 🙂
2. Cold Oats – One cup oats, one quarter cup of whole milk plain organic yogurt, one half cup whole non-homogenized milk, two tablespoons of chia seeds, one tablespoon of organic maple syrup. Mix together in mason jar and leave in fridge overnight, then fill up the Sili Squeeze as your little one demands. You might need to add a dash or two of milk before putting in the Sili if the mixture is too thick. This will keep in the refrigerator for about 3 days and still taste great.
3. PBC – One banana, Two tablespoons of organic peanut butter, one cup of almond milk, one tablespoon of Cocoa powder, one half tablespoon of organic agave syrup, and one handful of ice. Blend until smooth and fill Sili Squeeze for any little one over age 2. This packs a protein punch as well as a dose of calcium, plus a little something sweet for the chocoholic in your life.
Go get one for yourself, and you can thank me later!
Keepin’ it Fresh,
